to bury him. or hadiya pendleton who performed at president obama's inauguration festivities, became a gang fatality. she was not party to that fight or that culture. she was part of an epidemic. anderson and "360" have been reporting on it year after year, and people say enough is enough. >> this was the hardest thing to see another baby lying in a casket. >> get in here and change the city. make it safe for us to walk down the street every day. >> we lost seven children this year. enough is enough. >> i really, really hope somebody can stop this. >> you can expect this to happen every single night. >> these conditions are killing our children. >> all of us need to step up. >> this is truly unacceptable. >> we need help. we're crying out for help. >> enough is enough. >> those sound bites extend back to 2007. for six years, everyone has been saying enough is enough. but still, the killing here continues. we'll take a look at why it's happening. we'll start with president obama who came here today for the first time in his administration to specifically address the heart ache and off

singular murders i referenced just now with regard to hadiya pendleton last leek, what does the leadership of the nra need to happen before it will support anything that might make us safer? what needs to happen? >> what you're underscoring here is the fact that we've got to stop asking the question here, what will be enough for them? we've got to seize the opportunity to make sure that they feel the pressure of the american people. they are the ones who are being anti-democratic, small "d." they're the ones being unpatriotic in the sense they're not protecting all the citizens here. to ask what it will take for them, they will have to take somebody from their own families, some person who gets killed, murdered, or harmed that they know intimately for them to feel the message the american people collectively have experienced the horror of seeing these 20 vulnerable children and now miss pendleton subjected to arbitrary forms of violence that can be predicted because of these magazines and these drums and these strips that do nothing but bring carnage to our streets. they have no place in o

the 15-year-old chicago girl, hadiya pendleton, who marched in the parade in the inauguration and was gunned down, the 42nd victim of gun violence in chicago in january? that might be relevant to the issue of how do you stop trafficking of illegal weapons and relevant to the actual policy debates under way in this country. >> richard, why does inside the beltway media have a propensity to just focus on things that people don't care about? >> look, i've been part of that press corps. i was there actually at the time in the run-up to the war in iraq, and, by the way, there were people asking those questions, but as a pack, as a pack mentality, this is a game. look, the war in iraq was serious. don't get me wrong. but we're talking about kids in america who were killed and how to respond to that. and so, you know, the disjoint between this photo, what the president does in his leisure time, whether it's real or not, how often he does it, and the cold, hard facts of american children being killed by assault weapons in our schools, that seems to be -- we didn't know where iraq woul

of chicago, hadiya pendleton sitting with the first lady last night. nothing could have been more heartbreaking than seeing those people and seeing others. and your pain is of more distant years but no less raw to you. you lost your husband and your son was was grievously injured. >> you know, i look at it with handguns. on some of the things we are going to be doing. closing the gun show loophole because most of those guns are illegal guns. they're not people that went through their background checks and bought these guns. the majority of them are buying them on the black market. they're going to the gun shows. they're getting them over the internet. so legislation that we're talking about can stop that. it's not going to stop immediately. but it's something we can do long term to save lives. you know when you're talking about over 11,000 homicides a year, i understand that people say, well, you're only going to be able maybe correct 8% to 12%. well, that 8% to 12% are quite a few number of people's lives. they don't even talk about the lives that we can possibly save from seriou

. >> these proposals deserve a vote because of the human faces of violence in this country, like 15-year-old hadiya pendleton of chicago. >> just three weeks ago she was here in washington with her classmates, performing for her country in my inauguration. and a week later, she was shot and killed in a chicago park after school. just a mile away from my house. >> a mile away from the president's house in chicago. this is clearly personal to this president. and it's personal for all the families of gun violence who have been touched by it in this country. on their behalf, president obama made a passionate plea. >> hadiya's parents nate and cleo are in this chamber tonight, along with more than two dozen americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. gabby giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence, they deserve a simple vote. >> i have been to a numb

of hadiya pendleton, the chicago teen who performed at his inauguration, and obviously as we know, she was shot and killed just days afterwards. and now we have another death coming just hours after he makes his speech in chicago. and it's all just a sampling of what the president talked about, a newtown every four months happening in our cities, isn't it? >> that's right. i mean, listen, it's very, very important that the president was there and that he gave this speech. it's really a testament like princeton professor said on twitter, it's a testament to the black youth activists who started the petition and started the pressure on the president to come back home and to address these issues. it's a good model for the black opportunity and progressive activists who are interested in pushing this president to do certain things that making your voice heard does matter. >> the president was deeply personal in this speech about the importance of fathers. take a listen. >> there's no more important ingredient for success, nothing that would be more important for us reducing violence than s

and most recently the shot that killed hadiya pendleton, those are the shots that caught the attention of president barack obama, who recently introduced some executive and legislative changes that he wants to see before the congress. >> is it going to be hard to get a conviction? >> i don't think that it's going to be hard to get a conviction. as i said, we have two very critical pieces of evidence. we have an unarmed teenager and a man who had a gun. trayvon martin ended up dead. i think that's going to be very clear to the jury. >> how emotional do you think this is going to be? >> i think it's going to be an emotional time for the parents. tracy martin said something earlier today that really stuck with me. what tracy said is to the nation this is a story. and to us this is the grief that we deal with every day, the loss of our son. >> jasmine rand, thanks for your time tonight on "the ed show." thank you very much. >> thank you for having me. >> your trial is expected to start on june 10th. that is "the ed show" tonight. i'm ed schultz.
